Spectrum Signal Processing by Vecima (Spectrum (News - Alert)), which delivers advanced reconfigurable radio technologies that connect the complex world, recently announced the release of the SDR-2010.
The SDR-2010 is a very powerful and adaptable Linux-based signal processing platform. It is an Intel (News - Alert) 64 Architecture Server hosting the new high-performance PRO-2910 PCI Express based carrier cards. Each card has dual XMC/PMC sites.
This extraordinary configuration provides all the adaptability and processing power on an embedded signal processing system at the same time utilizing a server that’s Intel-based or PC has the host. Defense clients have already been shipped the PRO-2910 carrier and the related modules.
Douglas Fast (News - Alert), the president of Spectrum, said that the SDR-2010 enables their customers to reuse existing IP in a new, and more powerful, Intel-based signal processing platform. The SDR-2010 shows the company’s commitment to providing their customers with adaptable, high performance platforms that lessen their development time and cost.
The SDR-2010, which is also available in a ruggedized rackmount chassis for deployment, includes multiple 8-lane PCIe Gen1 interfaces to the PC motherboard, data rates of up to 400 MB/s between XMC sites and PRO-2910 boards, a high-speed communications fabric, and customizable server features like CPU, RAM (News - Alert), and high-speed disk options.
The PRP-2910 is a unique carrier card. It features flexible data routing that can be utilized to interface to the real-time FPGA, DSP, and I/O processing engines of Spectrum into industry-standard Intel computing architectures. This module supports Solano-based XMC modules from Spectrum like the XMC-1131 ADC (News - Alert) and XMC-2131 DAC modules. Third-party PMC modules are also supported.
Both the SDR-2010 and the PRO-2910 are used in Electronic Warfare (EW), Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) counting multi-channel direction finding and wideband spectral analysis, and Military Satellite Communications (MILSATCOM) applications. The SDR-2010 and the PRO-2910 enable several combinations of FPGA, DSP and GPP signal processing devices to support a broad range of software-reconfigurable applications.
